These are created from a custom mold (or molds) that I made from a hand carved clay master.
So, I loved the Macaron Soap v.1.0 but I really wanted to make something that was not only easier to produce, but also more like a real French Macaron cookie! I am so happy with the results!
here was the original:
Here is how I did it!
1) I carved the two cookie pieces from Super Scuply and then added a flat disk to one of the cookie sides for the middle. So the mold is a two part, one side just the cookie, and one side the cookie plus the middle!
3) I molded the masters. First I got a foam board that I cut and taped into a shallow box, then I layed out the masters and poured the silicon.
It was a mess but fun! I have made single cavity molds with silicone before but never anything on this scale!
Each one of the sheets was about $180 worth of silicone - Times 8 that really adds up!
